Blowing Up Fruitcakes




In case you wonder what all the noise coming from the Great Lakes Science Center lately is about—it seems they are blowing up fruitcakes.

This is evidently a practice session for the Center's 7th annual New Year's Eve Eve party slated for December 30, where they will offer exploding fruitcakes as an educational activity.

We don't know about the educational part, but it's funny. The guy laughing at the end is particularly funny.
